We make scrap metal recycling simple, efficient, and cost-effective.

The Sheet Metal Scrap Market and Pricing

Historically, manufacturers sent scrap abroad for cheaper processing due to lower labor costs, often returning as finished products. This pattern began to shift amid a burgeoning trade war between the U.S. and China, with new tariffs levied on numerous products, including steel.

Demand for sheet metal, including steel, aluminum, and stainless steel, has surged recently due to its growing applications in industrial manufacturing. The robust U.S. economy has further propelled this trend over the past six years, stimulating construction, infrastructure enhancements, and consumer product demand. Sheet metal is especially in high demand in the construction, automotive, and aerospace sectors, as well as in HVAC systems.

Suppliers are able to sell almost their entire production output, with recycling supply chains emerging as a valuable alternative in product manufacturing. The global sheet metal market, a thriving sector of the chemicals and materials industry, involves the development, processing, and refining of raw materials. Key applications include automobile and aircraft manufacturing and building materials, evident not just in the U.S., but also Europe, China, Japan, and Southeast Asia.

The burgeoning industry presents a potential windfall for scrap recyclers, especially as higher tariffs prompt U.S. firms to prefer locally recycled products over imports. Domestic recycling is now more cost-effective than importing the same product with a 25% overseas premium. American recyclers are now capable of fulfilling the increased demand for recycled metals, including sheet metals. This shift is also supported by the evolution of the sheet metal market over the past decade.

Benefits of Sheet Metal Scrap Recycling

Sheet metal recycling offers significant environmental and economic benefits. By reusing existing materials, we reduce the demand for virgin ore mining, thus minimizing our carbon footprint, saving energy, and preserving natural resources. Economically, it generates job opportunities, supports local industries, and offers a profitable avenue for businesses and individuals to dispose of their metal waste. Every piece of sheet metal recycled is a step towards a sustainable and greener future.
